Tomato saar is somewhat similar to tomato soup in texture but taste-wise saar has no competitor.Saar can be served as a soup or as a side dish.This perfect blend of sourness and sweetness can win any ones heart.
3 large ripe tomatoes
1/2 cup homemade thick coconut milk (recipe here)2"cinnamon stick
5-6 curry leaves
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp tumeric
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup water
salt as per taste.
3 tbsp cilantro
Pressure cook the tomatoes for 2 whistles.Let them cool, remove their skin and puree them.
Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan.Add cumin seeds,curry leaves,cinnamon stick and garlic.Fry for a min.Now add all the remaining ingredients except cilantro. Cook uncovered until the saar reaches the desired thickness.I personally don't like the saar watery.Just before serving add the cilantro and bring it to a boil.Serve hot.Makes 2 servings.
